Fun Camp

The Rec/IM Department at EMU is offering an exciting opportunity for your child/children to participate in a multi-dimensional day camp designed to promote friendship and fun. We are fortunate to be affiliated with a campus that offers a variety of resources to tap into as we plan our program. Campers will participate in groups with children of similar ages. Activities will be programmed to accommodate the interests and skill levels of each group. All children will have opportunities to interact together each day.


Children ages 7 (or entering 2nd grade in the fall) through 12.


Fun camp is managed by two Rec/IM professional staff members. The counselors are EMU students who have a passion for working with children and are studying education or recreation and/or have childcare-related experiences.

Comfortable play clothes and shoes, swimsuit and towel. Shoes should be running shoes or sandals with a heel strap. If your child desires to wear flip-flops or sandals without straps, please make sure they have another set of safe shoes for active games and activities.
